Ry was nice enough to leave a comment asking why it has gone so quiet here. Why has the blogging gone so cold? Well, I have to admit that the beer blog is getting all the focus, isn't it. So, I am blogging. Plus, I am co-authoring three books with three different beer writers, a history of Ontario, a history of Albany NY as well as a fantasy dialogue on the state of beer culture. Two of them are actually under real publishing contracts. So, I am writing a lot.
On top of that, politics has gotten so dull, so rote. Factionalism in US politics has led to stagnation more than roadblock and we are watching someone commit suicide - just not sure who yet. In Canada, the PM is sleepwalking through the slow disintegration of his career. The opposition is a bit dull even with Grit hints of some vital signs. Beyond politics, has anything caught my attention in broader culture? Pope's an improvement. Economy's better but not roaring. No really better bands, food products or computing options. I am writing this on an iPad mini. Does that count?
Maybe it's the relaxed state of affairs in life that have quieten end my mind. Fewer responsibilities are in front of me. My favourite teams are playing well. More time for SCTV DVDs in the den or poking around the garden. No frost yet even though we are well into October. I go to bed early on Friday nights even, up early enough for the fishing shows and the farm report.
What has become of me?
